Of the many nice old town I have seen, this is amongst my favorites. Spectacularly nestled on a rock that separates the harbor from the sea, the old town has lots of charme and atmosphere. You must also take a boats tour. Although a bit touristic it is a must doing and worth every penny. So many nice spots, almost... More

We arrived here after a very long drive from Bastia but we're not disappointed. It's such a beautiful place and we walked around the ramparts saw great views. We were lucky to find parking in haut ville park 4. Though the place is very touristy it still is worth visiting. There are lots of little lanes to explore and boutiques.... More

Coming to Corsica and not visiting Bonifacio can not be an option. It's a must, full stop. So I will not even spend time to explain all the reasons to come here, as many people have already done it. I would just advise you to get early to the city, especially in summer, as there is only one route that... More

We had no idea of what to do when our ship anchored at Bonifacio and there was little information on what to do in the area and no information on any private tours so I decided to be my family's private tour guide for the day and we ended up following other tourists when we couldnt find out way to...

We visited on our 7th day of Corsica, it was a perfect break after spending a week exploring different beaches on the east coast from various campsites. Our guide says it is impossible to come in town in August due to traffic and number of visitors. We took the challenge and arrived in the afternoon around 2 pm, and found... More

I echo what other 4 and 5star reviewers have said. The Marina is a bustling place with plenty of choice of restaurants although prices vary. The old city is as one would expect full of character and history. As other reviewers state wear sensible footwear as you will walk a lot and the ground is uneven due to the cobblestones.... More

Was thrilled to finally visit the iconic Bonifacio Citadel. It more than lived up to my expectations. Winding, steep cobbled streets, fabulous food market, amazing cafes and bakeries and, of course, unbelievable views from every street corner. Very kind locals too. However, it was incredibly busy. I work in London and even I found it crowded and stressful to park!... More

Bonifacio is a charming town all around. But the Citadel high above the port is beautiful and very romantic with lots of cafes and views to the sea. TIP: make sure you wear comfortable shoes as you will be doing a lot of walking.
